Do you agree with the current scientific position that the Universe had a beginning?
Do you accept the laws of physics?

Wait.... Dave's gone too?
WTF?
Do you think there's a connection? Perhaps RR and Dave have finally consummated their deeply held attraction for each other?
Hmmmm....

Which one of Noah's family was Chinese?

His other wife of Aztec descent was yellow.
One son was a homosexual aborigine.
One daughter carried both smallpox and cancer and was busy developing sickle cell anemia.
Noah also invented Viagra.

And it has recently been discovered that Noah's wives definitely preferred their sons lovemaking to Noah. 800 years can't take a toll on you!

The sun rose this morning just after 7:00 local time. It's been a very long time since I've been on the Atlantic. A few local fishermen are setting up. What a day we have that The Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be thankful.

Thanks for your faith based interpretation. Here's mine: How about if we just rejoice and be thankful without superstition? It will be a much better day for it.

Not a week goes by that our resident Atheist don’t post something about Hitler. At least a dozen times a week. Hitler is dead. He met his demise as his kingdom fell around him. Thousands of our military men and women lost their life in Europe. Most of them were Judeo/Christians as evidence of their grave memorials.
And the man who defeated Hitler as leader of the Allied forces was a Christian. Not a perfect man. As no man has been perfect. But he was a brilliant General that brought a crushing defeat to the Nazi’s.
With Eisenhower’s leadership the Nazi’s were defeated. He was a Christian and the 34 president of the United States. In fact I don’t believe America has ever had a President that didn’t believe in God.
At least we have never had a president that "admitted" he didn't believe in God. During that time it would have been political death, but I do believe the climate is getting better, and you just might see an Atheist president in the future. Do you think 50 years ago people would believe we would have a black president, and one from a Muslim background?

The great composers who wrote astounding religious works, Mahler's 8th symphony is a great example, all basically worked for the church, thats were the huge money was. Any composer who renounced God or declared Atheism was instantly out of work, he would have effectively cut off his head, no one would have hired him after that, church or otherwise. It's easy to declare yourself religious and make all the right moves, but one wonders what the feeling toward a fictitious being really are. How many people in high political positions would dare come out and say they had doubts about the existence of God?

Strange you should mention this as I was down to my slip this morning cleaning the snow off the boat as saw the same sunrise as you. However I saw it for what it was without the superstitious interpretation, a beautiful planet orbiting a middle age sun, tilted on its axis, and this axis now moving to expose more of the Northern Hemisphere to the warmth of the sun, purely naturalistic, no mythical being involved. Beauty for the sake of beauty, uncontaminated by superstitious beliefs.

BTW - for most of the Internet challenged, this site appears to be approaching about 30 attempt to track you on every page. One site is trying to insert software to take screenshots of your PC. I think they attempted to compromise the DNS system of my preferred proxy service within the last half hour.

This site is already defined as a bad risk by anti-malware programs. If you're not into taking risks, avoid this site. TOPIX! CLEAN UP YOUR ACT!!!

I could not find any other references to the supposed tax law, so it makes me wonder about the original article.
Especially as how many of the richest of the rich politicians, typically hide their real wealth from the IRS, using offshore accounts.
And such a law would be detrimental to their ill-gotten wealth... I doubt they'd allow such a thing to pass.

What do you want to learn?
I play Sax, piano, guitar, banjo, harmonica.
I've got skills...
I've been struggling with some of my piano voicings,can you help me with some suggestions on how I might voice a G in the melody of a Db7th chord, maybe for 5 voices? Thanks

And the chord scale for an A7 chord in the key of Bb is still bugging me, can you define the notes of the scale, thanks

And what the hell does subdominant minor mean? I think it has something to do with Modal interchange, whatever the hell that is, please define that also.

I also need some composing tips, do you compose at all? You said you were an expert in all things, so I assume that means tune writing and composing, if true could you help me with my tune writing and composing? I'd also like to learn about arranging, do you do an arranging at all? Thanks for your help!!
